Knitting Chemo Caps

There are several things you should know about knitting chemo caps that make them special charity knitting projects. First, when your hair falls out, your head actually hurts.  Therefore, yarn selection is especially important. Yarns must be soft and non abrasive. Second, when you have cancer, you feel awful and you are often pale, making color selection important. Style is important because everyone wants to look their best. It is much better to take the time to make a hat that will be well-loved than to crank them out just to make more.
When you select a pattern and yarn, put your all into it and it will be appreciated even more—and not languish in the bottom of the hat box in the oncology ward. Finally, people of all sizes, ages, sexes and skin color have to deal with cancer so don’t forget the little ones and the men when selecting your yarn and pattern. This is a garter stitch patterned hat knit in the round. It is designed to fit loosely so that it doesn’t “smush” your head too much. Because of the stitch structure, this is a very warm hat. Add a flower pin to spiff up this plain hat that
acts as a blank canvas for your creativity.
Hat sizes 18" (20", 22").
You will need: Worsted Weight, 110 to 140 yards. Size 8 needles or size to achieve gauge of 4 sts = 1 inch. One stitch marker.
